Teaser Tuesday ….. May 10th 2011

‘Teaser Tuesday’ lines this week come from another book, that I have managed to come into mid series.

This time it isn’t quite so bad, as, having checked, I don’t have any of the earlier books in my TBR pile, so I shall be reading this as a stand-alone novel and maybe buying some of the later books in the series, if I enjoy ‘South Of Hell’.

As usual, you can follow this link through to a full synopsis, if you need to know more about the storyline…

‘South Of Hell’ by P.J. Parrish … page 31

This Title Is Available From Amazon

“There he could sit in silence with his books, watching the bums and cops just coming off shift as he sipped dark chocolate milk made to order with Hershey’s syrup. No one bothered him there. He never felt out of place there.”

“Louis kicked off his shoes, grabbed the remote, and lay down on the bed. He flipped on the TV. It went right to the NCAA tournament, like the satellite was programmed to pick up anything remotely to do with UM sports.”


Why Not Take Part In ‘Tuesday Teasers’ – It’s Great Fun And Easy To Do

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of ‘Should Be Reading’.

Anyone can take part, by just doing the following:

1. Grab your current read.

2. Open to a random page.

3. Share two “teaser” sentences, from somewhere on that page.

4. Be careful not to share “spoiler” sentences, that give away too much about the book.

5. Remember to share the title and author too.

6. Head on over to ‘should be reading’ and leave a link to your post, so that others can share it.

Don’t forget that myself, MizB and all the participants of the meme, love to receive your comments and thoughts, so please take the time to leave a comment after linking.

I hope you all have some great lines to share with me this week.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

    • Hi Jules,

      I tried not to give too much away with the teaser lines. The book is much more hard hitting than the lines would have you believe, a great read so far.

    • Hi Louise,

      Thanks for stopping by, it’s good to ‘meet’ you.

      The cover on my copy of the book, is completely different to the one illustrated, as mine is a much older edition, it’s not nearly so dramatic!

      Hell, really is a place, it’s in Michigan, apparently. Imagine having to write that as your return address on an envelope!!

      Reading the story, it seems that the place lives up to it’s name, if you live there!!


    • Hi Kyanara,

      Thanks for visiting and commenting, it is much appreciated and I always love to ‘meet’ new people.

      The teaser lines are enticingly misleading, now that I am a bit further into the story, but then I guess that’s the whole point, to keep people guessing…

    • Hi Yvonne,

      Thank you so much for hpping by my blog and for the follow.
      I am following you back 😉

      As for the series in my blog the Fallen series by Lauren Kate.
      It is better to start with the first book of this series. Otherwise the story in the second book will be very confusing.

      have a great day!

    • Hi Lauren,

      Thanks for stopping by. This is one of the best things about blogging, getting to ‘meet’ so many great people, who all share a passion for the same thing…

      I am a great one for starting in the middle of a series of books, and this is no exception. I have managed to start with book 8 and it looks as if there is only one more chapter in this saga, as the author is now switching to a new leading character.

      Luckily, this book seems to work great as a stand alone story, a very good one at that. The character of Kincaid seems to be a very confused and somewhat lonely one, who has the power to draw instant empathy from the reader.

      I shall look out for any of the earlier books, on my travels around the charity shops, thanks for recommending ‘Island Of Bones’.

    • Hi Diane,

      It’s certainly not a straightforward plot, even though it appeared that way when I started out.

      I am still not sure where the storyline is going, there are so many twists and turns in the tale.

    • Hi Marg,

      Don’t be fooled by the relaxing teaser lines, the tension soon starts to build.

      On second thoughts, a nice bar of chocolate would go down very well with this real page-turner!!

  • You seem to find some very good books to delve into and I always love hearing about them. This one certainly sounds intriguing. Beautiful cover too.

    • Hi Cath,

      There are just so many books out there, that it’s not difficult to find an author that not many people have heard of, is it?

      I quite like the character of Louis Kincaid, but I am probably not going to go back and read the previous seven novels in the series. This works great as a stand alone novel and I have just acquired the next book ‘The Little Death’.

      I see that the author is now switching to a new character anyway, so that will be another series to look out for!!

    • Hi Julie,

      Sounds like heaven, doesn’t it? although I’m not keen on chocolate milk personally … coffee and a bar of milk chocolate, sounds much nicer!
      Besides which, if you read on from those lines, I wouldn’t have wanted to be there under the circumstances that prevailed!

    • Hi Gautami,

      That’s the problem with all these great blogs and memes … they throw up some great authors and books, that I have never come across before, and of course, I just want to read them all!!
      It’s a great problem to have, don’t you think?

    • Hello Soooz,

      Since I have got a bit further into the book, there have been several unexpected twists and turns to the plot, now I have no real idea where it is all heading, or what the eventual outcome might be.

      I love to recieve comments (don’t we all) and equally enjoy visiting as many sites as possible, where there are some great life thoughts and book recommendations to be had.

  • I always like when people add direct links to more about the book in their teaser; the synopsis on this one sounds fab. The teaser also made me crave chocolate? Hmmm … let’s see what I have in the cupboards! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    • Hi Julie,

      Thanks for stopping by.

      This one is certainly getting better the more I read, it is now quite an intriguing plot. The synopsis was certainly good at whetting the appetite, but not giving too much away.

      I don’t know about you, but I never need an excuse to hunt down chocolate!!!
